This is the biggest news in the land of TV since, well, ever. It’s a struggle to get all of the words out because there’s so much to say about this year’s fan-freaking-tastic Emmy® Awards, which are right around the corner. First up, the Daytime Emmy® Awards, the definitive TV award show, isn’t going to be on TV this year. Say what?! That’s right. Instead of inviting your friends over for your usual TV party, you get to send text-vites that read, “Hey, y’all wanna come over to live-stream the Emmys®? If you do, you have to bring your own popcorn and bowl.” Seriously, TV’s biggest night has gone low-budget. No amount of champagne or caviar is going to make your live-steam party fabulous.
Alternatively, you could pick up a few VIP after-party award show tickets with full monty access to the Beverly Hilton Ballroom, Kathy Griffin and a host of TV stars who are ready to party. The show is happening on June 22, so you’d better get of the couch before you’re stuck in a permanent position on Emmy® night.
You can bet that Kathy G is going to bring it. In her words, she’ll distract millions of viewers from enjoying the World Cup, so suck it soccer fans. (We added the last part.) In case you were hibernating when Ms. Griffith won the first of two consecutive awards for her hit show “My Life on the D-List,” the suck it Jesus quote comes from her controversial acceptance speech. Not only did the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences disavow her words, E! refused to televise the only part of the show that everyone wanted to watch. The unrelated National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences doesn’t seem to remember this speech, or maybe they do and want to capitalize on Griffin’s shock-the-pants-off-the-crowd comic style.
Either way, the unexpected and the hilarious are what you should expect. Of course, it goes without saying that real definition is funnier than any HD stream. If you want our recommendation, go with butter, not margarine. Get VIP tickets to the real deal, never sit at home when you can party with the stars instead. The choice is obvious. Plus, ticket packages include after-party passes. Whoo! Nothing compares to a party at the Beverly Hilton, the preferred venue for the most popular award shows and A-list parties.
Primetime, Daytime or Both?
To be clear, the 2014 Daytime Emmys® honor the people and programs that enchanted viewers throughout 2013. Unlike the Primetime Emmys®, this event includes shows that air between 2 AM and 6 PM. Unless you experience the midnight sun, 2 AM is no one’s idea of daytime, but everyone has to deal with those shows that nobody’s watched expect those darned night owls, which no one has seen either. If primetime is your time, that award show is happening in August, and we have tickets.
On the other hand, if you’re one of those morning people that we keep hearing about, the Daytime Emmys® might be more your style. Procrastinators beware, because we only have two pairs of after-party award show tickets left for this rang-dang-doo event. Don’t delay, or you’ll be more disappointed than Susan Lucci after her 18th Emmy® snub. You’ll have to re-watch that Kathy Griffin special on VHS if you don’t hurry. We know you have her CD too. Really, we don’t want to tell you to suck it, so you’d better hit that “Buy Now” button before someone beats you to it.
